How Vote By Mail Works in Nevada

Voting by mail is a one step process in Nevada. It is a vote-by-mail state, meaning that all registered voters receive a ballot in the mail.

Step 1: After you complete your ballot, be sure to return ASAP!

  • Return in person by November 8th at 7 p.m. You can return your ballot to your county designated dropbox or local elections office.
  • Or mail your ballot - it must be postmarked by November 8th and received by four days after Election Day to be counted. To make your postmark date, put the ballot into your home mailbox for collection at least one day prior to ensure it is picked up and processed. You can also drop the ballot off at the post office before the last posted collection time on November 8th. We recommend returning ASAP as the post office may not be able to deliver within five days, even with the postmark.

Need your ballot sent to a different address? Apply here ASAP (deadline October 25th at 5 p.m.) and follow the steps listed above. If it is your first time voting in Nevada, you need to submit a copy of your photo ID with your application.
